• metastasis
  • Patients groups were (i) histological diagnosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia with no evidence of cancer BPH, (ii) localised cancer with no evidence of progression, non-progressing (iii) localised cancer with evidence of biochemical progression, progressing, and (iv) bone metastasis at presentation metastatic.

  • liver
  • For instance, a cancer in the liver may be a 'metastatic' breast cancer, i.e. it started in the breast and traveled the blood stream or lymph channels and lodged in the liver to grow there. (sharecare.com)
  • flank
  • A 7-year-old female German Shepherd Dog was presented with multiple petechiae and ecchymoses along the ventral abdomen, flank, and on the vaginal mucosa. (docplayer.net)
  • On physical examination, the dog was bright, responsive, and had multiple petechial and ecchymotic hemorrhages along the ventral abdomen, flank, and on the vaginal mucosa. (docplayer.net)
  • The initial symptoms of RCC often include blood in the urine (occurring in 40% of affected persons at the time they first seek medical attention), flank pain (40%), a mass in the abdomen or flank (25%), weight loss (33%), fever (20%), high blood pressure (20%), night sweats and generally feeling unwell.

  • commonly seen
  • Table 157.1 lists the predominant defects in host defense mechanisms associated with various cancers and the infections most commonly seen as a consequence of those defects. (nih.gov)
  • metastases
  • The number of metastases in a specific tissue is counted and it directly correlates with the metastatic ability of the injected cancer cells. (jove.com)
  • The arisen metastases are isolated and cultured in vitro as cell lines, which often show enhanced metastatic abilities than the parental line when injected again into immunodeficient mice. (jove.com)
  • brain
  • 16 For histopathologic examination, various tissues including samples of the peritoneal mass, brain, lung, adrenal glands, and lymph node were fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin, routinely processed, paraffin-embedded, sectioned at 5 ┬Ám, and stained with hematoxylin and eosin. (docplayer.net)
  • mass
  • While the initial diagnostic approach is similar to the unilateral incidentaloma, additional testing and/or genetic testing should be considered in the case of the bilateral adrenal mass. (hindawi.com)
  • Defined as a mass 1 cm or more in diameter found during a radiologic study done for reasons other than evaluation for adrenal disease, the adrenal "incidentaloma" is present in approximately 6% of the population [ 1 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The duplex demonstrated bilateral enlargement of the adrenal glands, and MRI of the abdomen showed high T2 intensity of bilateral adrenal masses with the right-sided mass measuring 4.3 cm and the left-sided mass measuring 2.8 cm (Figure 1 ). (hindawi.com)
  • kidney
  • The most significant disease affecting risk however is not genetically linked - patients with acquired cystic disease of the kidney requiring dialysis are 30 times more likely than the general population to develop RCC. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Although all patients with cancer of an unknown primary site have advanced, metastatic disease, universal pessimism and nihilism regarding treatment are inappropriate. (cancernetwork.com)
  • About 80% of patients with acute leukemia, 75% of patients with lymphoma, and 50% of patients with multiple myeloma develop infection during the course of their disease, and infection is the proximate cause of death in a substantial fraction of these patients. (nih.gov)
  • Limited-stage cancer, which is potentially curable, is treated with chemotherapy and radiation, with surgical resection reserved for selected patients with stage I disease. (medscape.com)
  • primary
  • As with most epithelial cancers, the incidence of unknown primary cancer increases with advancing age, although a wide age range exists. (cancernetwork.com)
  • common
  • Developmental basis of surgically treatable common congenital abnormalities e.g. congenital heart disease and malrotation of gut. (techylib.com)
  • The exocrine group is dominated by pancreatic adenocarcinoma (variations of this name may add "invasive" and "ductal"), which is by far the most common type, representing about 85% of all pancreatic cancers. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • However, the discovery of incidental bilateral adrenal masses requires special attention and an expanded diagnostic approach. (hindawi.com)
  • changes
  • This model has been used effectively to measure metastatic response to both changes in protein expression as well as to response to small molecule therapeutics, in a short turnaround time. (jove.com)
  • signs
  • An exam of the body to check general signs of health, including checking for signs of disease, such as lumps or anything else that seems unusual. (nkch.org)
  • population
  • A smoker's chance of developing the disease decreases if they stop smoking, and almost returns to that of the rest of the population after 20 years. (wikipedia.org)
